The office campus located in Espoo Finland was certified with the highly valued BREEAM In-Use international standard.

Säterinportti is an office campus located in Espoo, offering modern and stylish office space for businesses, from few hundred square meters to entire houses. The business campus reached a significant milestone in pursuing towards better working environment as it was awarded the BREEAM In-Use environmental certification.

The Building Research Establishment’s Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) is one of the most widely-used environmental assessment standards for commercial buildings. It includes evaluating the buildings’ physical performance as well as their use and maintenance. The certification can be granted to both new and existing buildings. The environmental assessment pays attention to health, wellbeing, energy, building accessibility, water, materials, emissions, property management, land use and ecology.

”The certification was actually received without additional efforts. Many of the criteria were already taken into account when the renovation project was started in 2016 to introduce the new office campus concept”, said Business Director Antti Venermo of Trevian Asset Management Oy, head of the Säterinportti renovation project.

Säterinportti was awarded the BREEAM certificate at the Very Good level. Investing in high-quality materials during renovation materialized in the evaluation as the materials category reached nearly the perfect score. Another strong category for Säterinportti was health and wellbeing, which can be explained by the investments made in wellbeing at work and in the unique Playground area with comprehensive services, including gym and yoga classes, pool tables and game consoles.

Trevian consulted Green Building Partners that lead the assessment project. Newsec Asset Management, technical manager of the property, also held a significant role in the project, especially with the practical measures. The owner of the property is the Swedish investment company Nordika, whose activities are driven by development and innovation.
